Hi Everyone! I am currently on day 14 of my first Whole30. I started this to eat healthier foods and learn to control my cravings. Before, I would consistently overeat cookies and other sugary treats while undereating healthy foods. For example, I wouldn't eat all day only to eat a small dinner and then lots of cookies at night. Now that I have started whole30, I haven't had cravings for food groups that are not allowed. However, I have had intense bloating and constipation and I have felt very tired and overly full. Additionally, I cannot seem to stop eating. No matter what food it is, I feel out of control. For example, today I ate about 15 homemade meatballs, spaghetti squash with marinara, a large orange, 2 sliced apples with large spoonfuls of almond butter, seven dates dipped in almond butter, and a few spoonfuls of almond butter. It is only four PM. For some reason, none of the foods seem to satisfy me even though I am full to the point of discomfort. I still have the desire to eat more. I am not sure what I should do to fix this. I didn't allow myself to eat any fruit or almond butter for days eight and nine. I was less prone to overeating but I was exhausted and my brain felt foggy. After I reintroduced fruit, I went right back to overeating it and everything else. Additionally, I have felt very weak during my workouts. I typically run 3+ miles every day. For the past two weeks, I have been really struggling when exercising. My mile pace has slowed by about a minute and I feel worse than I did at a faster pace. Does anyone have advice? I am trying to make the most of these thirty days and I am sick of feeling overly full, tired, and unsatisfied. I am confused about why my body feels worse even though I am fueling myself with healthy foods. Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read this and offer advice! I really appreciate this!!!
So I typically eat healthy and limit sugar in general so adjusting to this plan was pretty easy. However, I have yet to see the benefits. Im not looking to loose weight, but was hoping that an elimination diet would get my gut under control and my put my digestion in check. However, I broke out in acne - which I never ever get - about a week ago, and my gas is ridiculous! I referred to my blood type diet and saw that I should not be eating beef, which is mainly what I was eating the first 3 weeks. The elimination of chicken and beef have seemed to help more than anything else. I also eased up on the potatoes as I felt like they were just making me fat. Also having trouble understanding why additives are approved like dipotassium phosphate in Nut Pods? Seems odd for the program to allow this, and not allow other whole food substances. When stuff doesn't make sense to me it's really hard to see the point.
